We were staying in Charleston, had went to see Angel Oak, and decided to go to Folly Beach for lunch. We saw this place. It was a real beach type place. My son and I split the snow crab legs, my wife had crab cakes....More

I ordered the crab and shrimp tray. The menu states 2/3 lb of shrimp and 1 cluster of snow crab legs. When I called about the shortage, the man who answered said, “I’m kind of busy here.” I paid 35.00 for this.More

Very disappointed. Very poor quality crab cake and shrimp. Dry, poor flavour, packet type corn (unbelievable in US to not have fresh corn). Friendly and helpful bartender but overall a poor experience and I would not recommend and will avoid for remainder of my holidays.More
